Since I don’t know what yours looks like exactly, this may or may not help. What I do with my POS Delta with a one-piece “crescent moon” connector, which isn’t straight is:
Get one side square to the blade at miter setting zero, crank down on the two mounting bolts that hold down that side, then go to the other side and set that side square, then crank down on those. I’m actually bending the fence when I set the second side, but given my feelings toward this particular tool, it actually feels pretty good!
